here is a new frog challenger

Post by drfloyd » Tue Jun 09, 2020 5:02 pm

Hello

Laurent from France, fan of retro computers

First, sorry for my bloody english :)

I come here to discover retro Uk computers like BBC MASTER ou Archimemes 3010

Perhaps it is possible to buy one here ?

See you

Does Micro 8bit mean BBC Micro, or just 8bit micros in general?
I ask because I think the BBC Micro deserves a specific mention for Elite 1984. I'm not usually this picky about the beeb, but I think it was the only version until '85 - Doh! Forgot the Electron - that was possibly '84 too.

As I say in France there is about no discussion about Acorn Computers :(
As in UK there are no discussion about Thomson Educational French Computers :mrgreen:

I think RobC added some Thomson display modes to his Video NuLA, not sure if he ever did an emulator like his Speccy and CPC ones.

Yes - I did this mainly because I'd just got hold of a Thomson MO6 at the time and because it was a good fit for VideoNuLA. However, I haven't got round to writing an emulator for it yet :oops:

That is like an Olivetti Prodest PC128S emulating an Olivetti Prodest PC128. That sounds easier than it is.
